SALISBURY - – Dealing with legal affairs can be a complicated process, but having the right advice on how to handle them can make all the difference. The W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center is now offering Veterans help in navigating the legal system by providing legal clinics on campus.
The legal clinics, which began in September, are providing Veterans with guidance on basic civil matters like housing cases, mortgage foreclosures, child support modification and defense, wills and powers of attorney.
This is possible through a partnership with Legal Aid of North Carolina and Legal Services of Southern Piedmont – who provide two attorneys and one legal assistant for the clinics.
Carolyn Cardwell, Veterans Justice Outreach coordinator for the Salisbury VAMC, said the clinics are providing Veterans more options to remedy legal issues.
